Nintendo-backed The Pokemon Company on Wednesday announced a cross-platform Pokemon team battling game developed with Tencent's Timi Studio as the two gaming heavyweights deepen their cooperation with a twist on the Pokemon format.
Tencent announced last July its Shenzhen-based Timi Studio was working on a new Pokemon title. The studio behind the monster mobile hit "Honor of Kings", it is targeting overseas expansion and recently hired a US director from French gaming company Ubisoft.
Nintendo's share price this month touched 12-year highs as demand from shut-in consumers and the huge success of island life simulator Animal Crossing: New Horizons buoyed sentiment around the Kyoto-based firm.
